SanctimoniousApe Posted January 12, 2006 Report Share Posted January 12, 2006 Thought I'd post this here as I rec'd no immediate response over on the new version announcement thread.Have tried the "Speed Guide" feature, but am not really seeing the improvement. My old settings of 8 active torrents / 7 DL (max 30 connections per) got me DL speeds in the range of 150K-250K typically, but with the recommended 3 active /2 DL (max 80 connections per) I'm seeing maybe 60-90K. Granted for two torrents that's pretty reasonable, I suppose, but certainly not more efficient overall. My (crappy) ISP is Comcast and I appear to have something like 4Mbps/384Kbps. My old settings came about after much testing.I used to use BitLord and get as high as 400K DL, but stopped when I read of BitComet's cheating - BL was supposedly an offshoot of BC (which I've never used) and there seemed to be some question about BL's fairness as well. While I of course would like to get the things I want as quickly as possible, I try to respect the community, too. I don't mind not getting speeds quite as high as I used to under BL in order to ensure fairness, but at the same time I don't want to have to wait 10x longer to get what I am after.Suggestions? (Non-flame) Comments?Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
